What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
When you submit a support question we collect your first name, last name, phone number, subject information, IP adress and your email address so that we can correspond with you and for spam related issues.
When you subscribe to our newsletter we collect your name (only when provided) and your email address so that we can correspond with you.
Your personal data will not only be stored in the website’s database.
We use WPForms on our Contact Us Page for messages, to allow you to get in touch with us. We also use a GDPR submission click/tick box. More information on WPForms can be found on their website at: https://wpforms.com/
